Enduring Friendship

God designed us for relationships but in a culture that prioritizes tolerance above truth, it’s often easier to avoid friendships altogether.  As Christians, we must take a different approach, and apply the wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit to the most challenging people in our lives! Pastor Bryan Loritts brings insights from the book of Philemon about transforming ruptured relationships into friendships that endure!
